I know that I am not be worthy. Show me the path of Dharma
Bless me oh Keeper of cows, Let me be the one of thy cow and lead to the path of righteousness
Let me catch a glimpse of thy divine leelas, let me hear a fragment of thy divine flute.
Give me strength Oh Gridhari to face the world, Be with me as my friend.
Lead me from darkness to light, From adharma to Dharma,f from sorrow to eternal bliss
Oh Krishna,Oh Gopala!, Oh vasudeva! Bless this world with salvation!


      Well in this article I want to tell How to login as root user in Ubuntu. I only was able to do so two days ago so i thought I will share it with you. After all that is the philosophy of open source ,Share and Improve. Well I got this Idea of logging into the root user from my Redhat linux coaching class. Our instructor showed us how to do this in redhat and I thought why not do this in my own machine. But I could never login as root in my gui mode. well that left me frustrated to say the least. It was last week when one of my friends send me this link which gives almost every details of day to day working of ubuntu. It is a pdf version of Ubuntu pocket guide and reference. by Keir Thomas It is available for free so download it. It is a good book for beginners to read.
       Well Back to business. How to login to root. well
Step1: Take commad prompt. Type
sudo passwd root
This will ask for your password. Type it and then you will get a prompt for root’s new password .Type in password of your choice
Step2: Now go to system->Administration->login window
You will get a window with tabs. Here select security tab like so
check the option Enable local Administrator login

Admin login

Admin login

      That is it logout and try logging in as root from gui mode. If anybody has any other method please send them to me. Do wrrte your feedback for this post.

      Well First of all my sincerest apologies to all people who has viewed my blog for the above mentioned installation. Well special apologies and thanks to A.Y. Siu . Well to tell the truth I was a little lazy in explaining the command but to rectify it I am going to do just that. It is a repetition of the explaination given in the site but atleast this will help me to blog better in the future. The command is actually several commands combined together using the && symbol.
if [[ ! -f /usr/bin/firefox ]];
then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox;
This is command is to check whether the ubuntu repository version is installed or not. This is important since some of the commands may depend on the repository version
if [[ -e ~/.mozilla ]]; then
cp -R ~/.mozilla ~/.mozilla.backup;
This command is to backup all our existing bookmarks,history etc to a temp folder called mozilla.backup
sudo tar -jxvf firefox-3*.tar.bz2 -C /opt
This extracts the downloaded file to opt directory
rm firefox-3*.tar.bz2
This is to remove the downloaded file because it has been extracted
sudo mv /opt/firefox/plugins /opt/firefox/plugins.backup
This is to add all our backed up plugins to a new empty folder in our newly extracted firefox folder
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/plugins /opt/firefox/plugins
Now we have to link all the pulgins with the firefox which we have downloaded. that is exactly what this do does it creates symbolic link
sudo dpkg-divert –divert /usr/bin/firefox.ubuntu –rename /usr/bin/firefox
This command is made to divert all the commands that are made to the old firefox to the newly installed firefox command
sudo ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
Last but not the least this command is used to create a symbolic link to all the command from various locations like panel to come into our newly installed firefox
Once again If you have any doubt refer here Please add your comments on how to improve my blog. Happy browsing and Happy Onam!

"Happy Browsing!!"
       Well people this is my first tech blog if you can call it. Well I had a great time with firefox 3.5 in my vista. Well I liked it addons and customization features. Especially the anycolor pulgin which allows us to give out browser new themes and colors of our choice. The only thing that worried me was that it started to crash more often than the old firefox. But other than that it was a great browser when compared with Ie. Well Then I thought to install firefox in my ubuntu machine but the get-apt update only updated it to firefox 3.0.3. Well I searched the web and came up with this blog which details how we can install 3.5.2 in our machines. The following command is to be executed in the command window
if [[ ! -f /usr/bin/firefox ]]; then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox; fi && if [[ -e ~/.mozilla ]]; then cp -R ~/.mozilla ~/.mozilla.backup; fi && sudo tar -jxvf firefox-3*.tar.bz2 -C /opt && rm firefox-3*.tar.bz2 && sudo mv /opt/firefox/plugins /opt/firefox/plugins.backup && sudo ln -s /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/plugins /opt/firefox/plugins && sudo dpkg-divert –divert /usr/bin/firefox.ubuntu –rename /usr/bin/firefox && sudo ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
      Now I don’t know exactly how this works but for more information you could go to the site which I referred by clicking here Happy browsing!!

Jai Ho!!

Jai Ho!!

            Yes My fellow Indians India has shown that despite being weaker team. Despite our defenders being short ,despite being stacked against all odds we came out victorious. This win along with Abhinav Bindra’s Olympic Gold medal, Vijender and Sushil kumar’s Bronze medals and Saina newhal’s victory all again and again proclaim that Indians have to attend to other sports other that cricket. Once again let us all congratulate our football team. Jai Hind!!

I have just heard that the official comment confirming the lost radio contact with Chandrayaan has been made public. Is it a failure? Never not on your life. The world has seen what India can do ,moreover we ourselves have seen what we could achieve with hard work and a little amount of faith. So chandrayaan is not the end but the beginning of a new era of space technology for INDIA. Jai Hind!!
